D-Bag of the Week: Tim Lincecum

July 16, 2008 – 12:01 am by TheRiot

I almost feel bad doing this. Almost.

I’ve liked Tim Lincecum ever since he pitched at the University of Washington. But a man’s gotta do what a man’s gotta do, and Lincecum proved Tuesday night that he is weak sauce.

The kid, who just might win himself a Cy Young in the National League this year, was all set to take part in Tuesday’s pre-All Star game festivities when he was beset with a bout with the flu that SENT HIM TO THE HOSPITAL and forced him to miss all of the All Star-related activities.

Now, I’ve had the flu a time or two in my life. The chills. The aches. The vomiting. The crapping. Sometimes all of it at the same time. But it has never, ever sent me to the hospital.

And I don’t know about you, but if it’s my first All Star game and the only opportunity I’m ever going to have to set foot on the field at Yankee Stadium before they tear it down I’m not going to the hospital.

It’s weak, man, and kinda douchebaggy.

Oh, yeah. Get well, Tim. I hope you’re OK.

  2. When I read “flu,” I actually read “alcohol poisoning.”

  3. I would say Tim is the pussy of the week, not the d-bag. If anybody sealed the deal as the d-bag of the week at the All Star festivities, it had to be Rick Reilly with his “[i]t’s a bad night to be an atheist” comment.

  4. Ha, well played bg, well played. Rick Reilly contributed almost nothing to the home run derby. He might have been worse than Berman.

  7. Just so we’re clear here: Tim Lincecum is a big, fat loserhead because he went to hospital because he was severely dehydrated and was suffering flu-like symptoms. Perhaps it might still be necessary to point this out; influenza still kills people every year.

    I guess all athletes are supposed to be play-through-the-pain manly-men. Especially pitchers who, as a group, are particularly vulnerable to minor problems.

    Though, I suppose the Giants could just resign Dave Dravecky to replace him…

    CRACK!

  10. “Now, I’ve had the flu a time or two in my life… But it has never, ever sent me to the hospital.”

    Thats because your just a loser with blog, not a 24 year old ace pitcher with major league talent and a future.
